Astute has another setback

Following the fire aboard Ambush at the start of April it now appears Astute also suffered fire damage on April 18th according to the MOD. The fire broke out on the conning tower and the damage has apparently prevented BAE engineers from sorting out problems with the propulsion system. BAE Systems still say they will deliver Astute by the end of the year.
